Thoughts of a Shop Girl: One Day

One day I won't go to bed hungry

One day I'll have space to let canvas dry

One day I won't be so lonely

but today I can only cry


One day I won't remember who hurt me

One day I will travel when and where I want to

One day I will get to speak in love

but today there's nothing I can do


One day this stone will roll out of my chest

When it hits the ground it will break

Through the cracks will be a light so bright

All that have lost their sight will want to take


Before they can see again though, I'll be long out of sight


One day I will barely be a memory

One day I won't have any worries

One day - one with the Earth I will be

but today... I'm in no hurry
